Jules Sebastian knows a thing or two about love and family.
Married to singer Guy Sebastian, 38, since 2008 , the 40-year-old juggles a career as stylist and being a mum to two kids, Hudson, seven and Archer, five – all while navigating her relationship in the public eye.
It's not without its challenges, as the Afterpay ambassador is the first to admit, confessing, "It can't all be rainbows and unicorns everyday".
Earlier this year, Jules and Guy found their marriage at the centre of headlines, when Guy confessed on-air that he had embarked on a brief but secret romance with fellow The Voice coach Delta Goodrem in 2003.
Guy and Jules had temporarily separated at the time.
But Jules is taking it all with a grain of salt.
"As long as I know the truth, as long as I'm not hearing that for the first time – that would probably be a bit of a problem, but I knew all of that," she tells Now To Love.
"The Delta thing was like – I felt for her because that's the last thing she wants to be dragged into, but I was fine. I knew the truth so I was fine."

It's no easy feat keeping a marriage strong for more than a decade, and Jules credits the secret to their happiness to genuinely liking and respecting each other.
"I think it comes down to I really like Guy. I mean, of course I love him, but I like him, I have a lot of respect for him, I just think he's a really solid dude," she says.
"He really makes good decisions, he's really kind to people and he works really hard and he has all those really strong characteristics that I find attractive. It can't all be rainbows and unicorns everyday. Life is just not like that, but yeah, we have a good time.
"We've got to work at it, absolutely - but for the most part, it's been pretty smooth sailing."
Jules adds that the couple has learned to live with the difficulties that come with life in the spotlight since Guy won Australian Idol back in 2003, explaining they're "in the flow of it" now.
"It's not easy, it's exhausting to be in the public eye, for him especially because he's constantly being recognised and being stopped and that's part of the job and he's totally fine with it," she says.
"But he's busy and you have to be grateful for that. We're so grateful that 15, 16 years later he's still making records and being booked for gigs and touring and doing all this stuff that he wants to do."
Meanwhile, Jules' career as a fashion stylist is going from strength to strength.
With the festive season in full swing, the mother-of-two is sharing her top tips for glamming up for Christmas parties – particularly for those going straight from the office.
"A lot has to do with the shoes you wear, because you can dress everything up or down with a shoe," she says.
"If you want to go out and have a hot pair of heels in your bag, it instantly changes the outfit – it instantly dresses it up."And Afterpay is a really good way to buy if you see an outfit that you love and you want to invest in, then you can take it home there and then you have instalments of easy payments and that makes it a bit easier, because you can budget for that."
